N2O sensor

Sponsored by

The new nitrous oxide (N2O) sensor from Unisense enables online measurement and process control of harmful greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment plants. Recent studies show that N2O emission may account for up to 80% of total carbon footprint from certain plants and that substantial and cost-effective reductions could be obtained through optimization of nitrification and denitrification process management. Until recently, pricey and vulnerable off-gas measurements limited N2O measurements to scientific research purposes, but the simplicity and durability of this sensor enables plant managers themselves to start monitoring and reducing their nitrous oxide emission.

Aeration Problem?

A supposed aeration problem is often nothing of the sort; it is simply the need for an efficient and appropriate mixer. Therefore, any facility striving to achieve as much treatment as possible on-site should consider mixing to reduce total operation costs.
